Family Holiday Association

We help struggling UK families to get a much needed short break or day out

Charity Registration No. 800262


I don't usually look for sponsorship for my cycling adventures - but this time I am for reasons that will become obvious - read on...

I agreed to cycle the length of the Rhine from its source in Switzerland to the North Sea at the Hook of Holland with a couple of others from my local cycling club (Tony and Ken) - before I had worked out how far it was!!  Now I have looked in more detail it seems I will cycling a total of 920 miles!!  50 miles a day - it isn't hilly but this distance everyday for 18 days will be a challenge for me!  

I am also about to take over as Chair of the Family Holiday Association from Alison Rice and so thought it would be a good opportunity to start with a fundraising event.

So please give what you can - and know that the Family Holiday Association will put your donation to good use providing UK families coping with some of the toughest challenges life can bring a UK seaside break or day-trip. This can be life-changing for those involved.
